Reading: Creepypasta: The Comic

Creepypasta: The Comic by Vincent V. Cava

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Why does this even exist? The art is horrible, and the stories are uninspired and dumb. I will however give props to the fact that whoever made this happen, was thinking outside the box, and tried to have that old ‘tales from the crypt’ feel to it.
Creepypastas are a great media to base comics on, so I really don’t know what happened. Or maybe I do, I mean – repeating myself, I know – this is a cashgrab, two semi popular people trying to bang a buck out of their audience. And dude, that is fine – just go into it knowing that it’s not good, or remotely creepy. it’s a circlejerk, a project to throw at the wall to see if it stuck – it didn’t.

But if you are a fan of either V. Cava or MrCreepypasta, by all means, knock yourself out, and add this to your fangirl library.

Reading: Tales from the gas station (vol I)

Tales from the Gas Station: Volume One by Jack Townsend

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Best thing I read all year. It’s easy to read, easy to follow – funny and enjoyable, it has just enough bizarre mystery and hints of contemporary horror to keep someone like me interested.
So if you are going to read 1 book this year, let it be this one.

PS: I swear this review is not seen in the light of all the shit books I have been wasting my precious time with lately.

You can read the original blog here and you can listen to this book as an audio book, narrated by the talented MrCreepyPasta

Reading: Stolen Tongues

Stolen Tongues by Felix Blackwell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely loved this book. I admit that I would have loved to have more like the first part/story in there, and I also think the ending suffered, which is a shame. But I do see how the author would be hard pressed to end this in any other way.
Regardless of me thinking the ending could have been better, then it’s a solid 5 stars for the most enjoyable read I have had this year.
